NUNC STANS: Land - free download
« on: July 23, 2008, 10:04:39 AM »

Now available for free download on the Ping Things net release label:



Nunc Stans: Land
"Land is a stunning work that captures the sound of Nunc Stans at a turning point
where drone-based sensibilities blend seamlessly with melodic work to create a stunning
sonic environment for the listener to explore. Influenced by the stark beauty of Northern
Canada, Kerby has created a set of aural landscapes that inspires and delights from the
cold drones of opener "Before the Colors Deepened", through the sparse melodies and
underlying urgency of "Journey of a Thousand Days", to closing track "Ice Field" with it's
beautiful humming tones and found sounds."
- rik maclean (Ping Things)

tracks (40 minutes)

- Before the Colors Deepened
- Journey of a Thousand Days
- Land
- Submerged Island
- Sitka Sound
- Ice Field

Get it  HERE

Starts with a couple of attractive openers, then gets into deeper, darker waters
with the title track, "Land". 

Enjoy!

Add my voice to those who giving this a thumbs up. Very nice indeed. I'm sitting all alone at Hamline in the suite where I work, with my desk lamp the only illumination in the place (the suite is about 15 offices and a half dozen cubicles) and this is perfect music for sitting here working...moody and atmospheric enough to yield a slight evocative if not cinematic edginess but yet not so scary or foreboding (since I have an active imagination after all ;)). The mixture of textures/drones with melodic elements is spot on...will have to give this a very in-depth listen as well since it sounds like it has the usual deep dense layered sound that characterizes recordings which APK has a hand in.

Many thanks for offering this as a free download, APK.

Finally listened to this and I love Ice Field, fitting end to the album. Very nice and serene with a touch of darkness on the final song. Nicely done!
